Original German WWII Luftwaffe Marked Clear Glass Beer or Wine Bottle Lot of 2 - Marked Property of Luftwaffe
Original Item: Only One Available. Genuine German WWII Luftwaffe marked beer / wine bottle offered in very good condition with the original porcelain top and swing top wire bale. Typically clear glass was used for beer, while green or brown glass would have been for wine, but this was not a hard and fast rule.
The white porcelain stopper is nicely marked on top with EIGENTUM der LUFTWAFFE, or Property of the Luftwaffe. There are also faint maker and lot markings on the bottom, making this an interesting research opportunity. Measures approximately 8 inches tall, and 2 1/2 inches wide.
The bottle still retains the rubber seal under the porcelain cap, which is shrunken, however still somewhat soft. The cap and bottle mouth are in great shape, though the metal closure bale is somewhat bent, but the bottle still closes properly.
The other bottle’s white porcelain stopper is nicely dated 1944 and coded FL UV with a Luftwaffe eagle. FL UV stands for Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung, or the Flight Barracks Administration, the agency responsible for Luftwaffe accommodations. The rubber washer under the porcelain cap is still present, but it has deteriorated over the years.
These are seldom encountered and would look great with a German WWII display.
Apparently many of these were found in a French Rubbish dump 70 years after the close of WWII. A hard to find yet affordable collectible from the Third Reich.
